Explore Reference Books

Reference works can provide an overview of a topic, define unfamiliar terms and concepts, and often provide bibliographies of key sources on a topic.

1. Identify a reference book entry relevant to your topic in one of the following sources:

  • Dictionary of Human Geography (Ref GF 4 .D52 2009)
  • Dictionary of Physical Geography (Ref GB10 .D53 2016)
  • Encyclopedia of Geography (Ref Ref G63 .E554 2010 v.1-6)
  • International Encyclopedia of Geography: People, the Earth, Environment, and Technology (Ref G63 .I56 2017)

2. Jot down the name of the reference book, title of the article/entry, and how it might be useful for your research.
